Abstract

  The knowledge of the epidemiology of odontogenic cysts and tumors is limited in India owing to inadequate data management at primary healthcare level. Therefore, this retrospective study was designed to determine the prevalence of orofacial cysts and tumors in south Indian population according to age and gender.

  Archived documents over a period of 5 years were analysed, tabulated and subjected to descriptive statistical analysis. Result revealed the common occurance of odontogenic cysts, followed by benign odontogenic tumors and malignant odontogenic tumors. All the cysts and tumors of odontogenic origin showed slight male predominance.

  It is of utmost importance to initiate preventive measures and initial screening protocols for maxillofacial pathologies. Such strategies require regular epidemiologic monitoring of the oral cavity and associated lesions.
